As Britain starts its transition period with the European Union, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been planning to build a £20bn bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland. According to international reports, a Downing Street spokesperson has said that Johnson has 'expressed interest' in relation to the bridge connecting Britain and North Ireland. The British government spokesperson further added that a 'proper piece of work being carried out into the idea'.
However, the suggestion which is reportedly being considered by the British government has taken the internet by storm. Netizens not only called the idea 'stupid' but also mentioned that it would cause a conflict with Northern Ireland's plan for ports along Antrim coast for North Sea Oil supertankers. Some internet users also mocked the British PM for being a 'disgrace'.

Beaufort's Dyke. End of.
If we can have a bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland, why don’t we build one to France?— ThatMancock (@MancockThat) February 10, 2020
It would be about the same distance and cost, but maybe we could ask the French to go halves? Just a thought
Ok, wait....no? Oh, I see..

Looking forward to Scotland and Northern Ireland both leaving the UK while the UK government is in the middle of constructing a bridge between them.— Tom Hamilton (@thhamilton) February 9, 2020
people are laughing at the impossibility of the Boris Bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland but it does include a loop-the-loop and an invisible service station— end of daves ❄️ 🥕 (@davemacladd) February 10, 2020
